Hi All
Please can any one help me? my car is a 1994 BMW 325td my first problem is the car does not start well when engine is warm takes about 25sec of constant turning the engine before it fires up also when cold it takes a couple of heats of the plugs to fire up? i have checked all the glow plugs and they work perfect and there is power going to them. Problem 2 the car is really slow up hills and once going will only do about 90mph flat out and seems to have no acceleration? 3rd prob every now and again the yellow diesel light comes on the one i think tells you there is water in the diesel next to the glow plug light it illuminates then the engiine will cut out and not start again till the next day and then i have tow to get going. The car is just had a full service 100 miles ago. If anyone can help me out i would be gratefull there is two things under the bonnet that concen me also 1 being inder the inlet manifold(plenium chamber i beleive its on the right side of the engine) there is a black pipe which comes from the bottom of the manifold this goes to no where and is dangling down there is slight air coming from the pipe??? also at the end of the heater plugs wires there is a blue connnector which is also disconnected there are 4 altogether 1 goes to the 3rd diesel injecter the other 1 to the head and the other to the bottom of the inlet manifold the forth is just again loose and dangling?? im sorry for all the questions but im pulling my hair out its just breaks down everytime i go out if it breaks down again im just leaving it where it does im getting p*/sed off with it. Again anyone who can help i would be really gratefull
